A Cup of New Year’s Eve Soup

A Cup of New Year’s Eve Soup!

Last night was a wonderful evening – spent in the same way as the previous 25 years or so!  Fondue with good friends Debbie and Dennis!  One new addition to our meal was this New Year’s Eve Soup.  It made a delightful palate cleansing between the spinach-artichoke dip and the fondue!  This is a simple soup that just needs a gentle heating – no boiling for this one!

  • 1 – 14.5 ounce can tart red cherries
  • 1 – 14.5 ounce can chunky fruit cocktail
  • 1 large navel orange, peeled and cut into sections (no pith)
  • strips of zest from one lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Combine all ingredients into a small pan over low heat.  Cover.  Heat through but do not allow to boil.  Enjoy!
